We Love Children!

We promote a family friendly relaxed atmosphere.  The lodge was designed with children in mind. Here are a 4 facts for you...

1.  Children's Play Area

sandrocks-lodge-children-familyA lovely little area for the kids to enjoy which is in full view of the rooms and the restaurant and lounge bar.  This means you get to relax while your little ones play safely.  We have 2 baby swings and 2 older children swings, a playhouse, paddling pool, a slide, stepping stones and seating area.  All under the cool shade of the trees.  

A few bat and ball games are available but you are welcome to bring your own toys and games. Large areas for volleyball, football or just playing hide and seek and explore! Our safe lodge is surrounded by a fence and security.childrens-playhouse-sandrocks-lodgeplayhouse and paddling pool

Please do advise about your children's requirements before you arrive if possible.  This is so that we can provide the best service for you.  We try to get their meals prepared first so they are happy, making you happy!

We do have a limited children's menu but usually we serve smaller adults portion.  If spicy, we can reduce the heat.  We sell soft drinks and some snacks.  Favourite snacks and drinks can be brought in for the younger children.  We can provide plain food for your baby including porridge, or you are welcome to bring your own baby food.  You may prepare in our kitchen. 

Under 4's - free.  4 to 12 is half price or less of adult charge, depending on the dish.  Ask for details.  We have highchairs, plastic patterned plates, beakers and small knives and forks.

The restaurant and lounge bar area is great for kids to draw and colour or play board games in.  So you can keep them entertained out of the heat of the sun.view-of-boat-restaurant-from-play-areachildren drawing sandrocks lodgechildren painting at sandrocks lodge

We have many large rooms available to be made up to family rooms with extra beds and cots (depending on availability). So advanced booking is essential.  Small double bed - 4ft wide.  Single beds - 3ft wide and a cot suitable up to 2 yrs old.  All come with their own mosquito nets.  Extra beds for children are Tsh10,000 for single or double bed per night.  Tsh5,000 for a cot per night.  Discounts available for a week or more. 

Please check the descriptions on our rooms on our room pages En Suite Stone rooms and African Bandas.  While some rooms can take a double bed it will create limited space.   Great family rooms are the En Suite rooms - Simba and Tembo.  Tembo being the largest. 

For older children, you may like to consider a combination booking by adding a separate room from our ground floor range - Duma is our other En Suite room for 2 people in king size (discount available for 1).  Kifaro is our cheaper ground floor banda (with shared facilities about 15 mtrs away), and directly next to Tembo. 

All en suite rooms are near each other with entrances 15 mtrs from each other.  You can combine with bandas above the En Suite rooms,  but it is advisable for much older children, due to the stairs.  Particularly at night.

The beach is a peaceful 550mtr ( 8/10 min) stroll along quiet paths to a wonderful 4km stretch of brilliant white soft sand.  The children love the walk as it is quiet, safe and interesting.

It is the Indian ocean, it is not suitable for children to swim unaccompanied.  However, there is no end to paddling and sandcastles to be made here.

Horseback Riding is available on the beach.  From a professional horse club 3 km away.  Morning and afternoon for approximately 1 hour rides.  Bookable from the lodge.
